 English term or phrase: W Using the average tonnes/hour in your plant, calculate the specific belt load W in kg/m for bag loading as follows: W = t/h * 1000 / 3600 * v (metric) W = t/h * 900 / 3600 * v (short tons) Does W stand for weight? If so, should I use the W or translate it? Thanks.

Explanation:
Keeping it depends on the job, the client, the rest of the translation, whether this W appears on a label, etc.
